It was established in 1897 by Daniel David Palmer and is considered "The Fountainhead" as it was the first school of chiropractic in the world.cite web | title = History of Palmer Chiropractic| publisher = Palmer Chiropractic College| url =| date = | accessdate =2008-06-17 ] For many years, Palmer College of Chiropractic was the world's largest chiropractic school. Most early chiropractic schools were founded by Palmer alumni.

The college opened satellite campuses in San Jose, California in 1980 and in Port Orange, Florida in 2002. The Palmer Chiropractic University System unites all three campuses together as a non-profit organization governed by a single Board of Trustees.

Palmer School of Chiropractic has a rich history, directly correlating to that of Chiropractic. While D.D. Palmer began the school, his son, also known as the developer of chiropractic, B.J. Palmer, greatly expanded the scope of the school and laid the foundation for the campus and profession that exists today.

The college is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and awards degrees at the associate, baccalaureate, masters and doctoral level.
